I am a very experienced, highly qualified psychiatrist who has been practising psychiatry consistently since 1989 and has worked as a consultant since 1996. My approach is always to put the patient at the centre of any treatment plan and working closely with individuals’ carers where appropriate. I treat adults, older children/adolescents and have an endorsement in treating older adults.
I practise an evidence-based approach to treatment but will always listen to the request of the individual and advise on the latest treatment appropriate for any diagnosed condition. I provide outpatient clinics at Priory Hospital Southampton (Marchwood) and Priory Wellbeing Centre Southampton as well as Hampshire Health Emsworth. I will direct an individual to psychological therapy where indicated and have a network of psychology colleagues to refer to.
I treat a wide spectrum of mental disorders and stress related illnesses. I am also ADOS-2 trained for diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorders. I am particularly interested in women’s mental health and the link between hormonal variation and mood disorders and psychosis.
